So brewdog are now offering a bond with a fixed 7.5% interest rate.

-The BrewDog Bond accepts a minimum investment of £500 (there is no maximum!)

- There is a fixed annual 7.5% yield over 4 years

- Interest is paid out biannually

- The Bond will be available for 45 days

Fun stuff....

We will dispatch to Bondholders an exclusive BrewDog ID card which can be used to secure a 10% discount in all BrewDog bars, whether in the UK or overseas. Plus the card-holder will receive a free beer on their birthday, on us, and £10 of BrewDog beer bucks to redeem in one of our bars. Each and every BrewDog Bondholder will also receive a discount on their online purchases of 20%!

Bear in mind that any investment is at potential risk, due to the lack of FSCS protections on such a bond!

Only 14 investors since September 2015 and only £33k raised so far, its not setting the beer world alight?

it my be a bit riskier than established companies that offer savings etc but the return is greater........the good old risk vs reward

I may do £500, I like their Punk ipa its a decent beer.

So far Brewdog has raised £7m in UK through three crowdfunding offerings and equivalent to £15m in the US. Not an entirely unsuccessful track record.

You do know it only launched this morning right? September 2015 was the last one to build the Ohio brewery

So, at what point does a craft beer brewery become a multi-national mega brewery?

At no point in the UK, hence you have brewing conglomerates selling "craft ales".

Different in the US, where the term originated - they specify out put and ownership restrictions for "craft" breweries:

May as well just put the money in one of the peer to peer lending sites for more interest

What's crap about it? Which brewdog beers have you tried? Been to their bars? Tried any of the hundreds of beers they've sold other than punk and dead pony? I'm guessing not...

It's not.

A fantastic forward thinking company that I've recently visited through work. Also just invested heavily on new distillery equipment.

Don't wish to be a party-pooper, but I'm pretty sure you have to be FSA-regulated to be able to promote financial products, give financial advice, etc, amd I very much doubt HUKD (or those contributing to this thread) have the appropriate accreditation => this thread should be pulled ASAP.

Merry Christmas.

Perhaps you should go get the Money Saving Expert forum shut down because you obviously know more than the legal department of a 80million pound website. (edit: damn, beaten!)

That said, if anyone does want to stick their money away in a 4 year bond, I'd go for one actually protected by the FSCS. And for low amounts, far better ways of getting interest out there.

When I first glanced at this I thought it was Brewdog Bond 7.5% alcohol! In otherwords a deal for a new beer.

the irony, this post is just above and hotter than a Carling deal...

7.5% wow.

5x the interest on my Santander 123 accounts oO

Is Brewdog protected by the FSA?

Answer to my own question:

Mini-bonds provide a regular return by lending to established brands. They are only available to investors based in the U.K. and are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme

Their alcohol really is over hyped hipster toilet water. However I like the brand and the bars are cool but I just can't recommend what I've tried.

This isn't about their alcohol though, the bond seems like an excellent opportunity. BrewDog has expanded so much over the past few years and I can only see them getting bigger. The whole craft beer phenom seems to be still a big thing and the market has bred more competitors but none of them have the global presence that BD have.

surprised they need to do this, not a massive fan myself but they've grown quite big now

Tried many of their tasters, desperate to find a beer I can drink, but like most 'craft beer' it's all battery acid style IPA. Brewing is all about finding a sweet spot of taste, unfortunately craft beer seems to be all about hoppiness.

Won't shed a tear in a decade when Brew Dog are no more

Always look for a lower risk/reward theses days.

Who is this FSA everyone keeps quoting? Do you mean because it's food related ie food standards agency, although not sure what protection they can provide from a financial perspextive. Or do you actually mean the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority)?

Seeing as though most of you are experts in this. Where would you put 20K for four years then?

You probably get better financial advice from punters on here than IFAs who are only interested in lining their pockets.

Fair play to them for having an anti-establishment sales pitch and setting up a 'cool' brand, but they really are chancers - Creators of a reality distortion field worthy of Trump.
Buy and enjoy their beers if that's your thing, just think long and hard before putting hard cash into their business as if they are a bank.

​Not true, you should probably read up a little more on the 'FCA' rulebook. It is perfectly acceptable to discuss financial products in a non-professional capacity.

So if you put £500 in and it doesn't go to the wall, what would your overall return be?

£650 but you'll get £620 after the interest is tax at 20%

Your first £1000 of interest is now tax free, surely it'd apply to this?

Having worked for RBS, and been a customer of pretty much all the main banks. They the scummiest of them all. If it wasn't for the 75k the government backs up there would be no real benefit to putting your money in a bank these days. Ooohhh 0.5% interest than you very much kind sirs! That they then change whenever they want, while bending you over for fees, charges, their own interest rates on products, changing terms and conditions when they want, losing billions casually as if it's nothing.
The money they waste is staggering and the attitude about it even worse.

Anyway! Rant over
For the right person this surely is good

What happens after the 4 year term?

This is so haram lol

AVOID!!!!
